Gentle Giant: April 2012 Solicitations

By Mike — Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Gentle Giant has released their solicitations this month for exciting new product coming out in the 4th Quarter of 2012. For Star Wars, these include a new Death Trooper Statue and the Jumbo Vintage Red Snaggletooth and Red Security Battle Droid Minibust which were revealed at last month's WonderCon.


Death Trooper Statue - $225

Inspired by the events from the Random House novel Death Troopers. Nothing can prepare the galaxy for what lies waiting aboard a seemingly abandoned, derelict Star Destroyer. Amidst its vast creaking emptiness the unknown is lurking and the dead are slowly rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

This elite Stormtrooper is infected with more than just the dark side. This remarkably horrifying 1/6th scale statue is crafted in heavy, high quality poly-stone. Each piece is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Accurately sculpted with detailed and distressed armor, then hand painted to Gentle Giant's always exacting specifications, this unique limited edition piece is a must-have for Star Wars and horror fans alike!
















Security Battle Droid Mini Bust - $75

License: Star Wars

Item Number: 80023

UPC: 8-71810-00933-6

Dimensions: 5” L x3”W x 7” H

Release Date: Q4 2012


The OOM Security Droid, predecessor of the B1, are employed by the Trade Federation in great numbers for defense and detection. Distinguished from other OOM models by the red markings on their chest and abdomen, they often work in squads and are equipped with E-5 Blaster Rifles. Even though their programming is more complex and robust than the B1 model foot soldiers, this model is also plagued with the inability to hit the broad side of a bantha in combat.

Now you can start building your Droid army with this film accurate, painted to perfection piece. This 1:6th scale mini-bust is a limited edition that comes with a matching, numbered certificate of authenticity and includes a built-in authentic movie sound effect!

By 4th Quarter does Gentle

By 4th Quarter does Gentle Giant really mean, sometime in 2013 if you're really lucky? I'm still waiting for the Pre Vizsal maquette that was announced over a year ago and it keeps getting pushed back and back and back and back.
